Ari Widyati Purwantiasning, Saeful Bahri


This research is part of multi-year research, which is undertaken for two years. This research is second-year research, which should be done at the end of the year 2020. This research aims to analyze the possibility of applying two principles of Transit-Oriented Development's concept. Those two principles are walking and cycling. By analyzing the option of applying those principles, we have tried to propose the best solution to issues and problems within the historical area of Kota Tua Jakarta. This research's significance is the existence of a pedestrian way and bicycle way within the historical district of Kota Tua Jakarta. Since the historical area of Kota Tua Jakarta has become the most important place to be visited, the need for pedestrian facilities as a public open space and the bicycle way facilities has also increased due to the adjustment of lifestyle and standard of living. This research has conducted the qualitative method using a case study as a way of thinking to get a clear description and fact. We have conducted Kota Tua Jakarta as a case study because it is one of Jakarta's significant historical regions. The result of this research is by proposing an idea and design which implemented the concept of walking and cycling. The idea and design as the conclusion have covered the proposed plan of a pedestrian way and bicycle way within the historical area of Kota Tua Jakarta. Hopefully, the result of this research will support another study about the historical district and Transit-Oriented Development's concept.
